My Infant Son Has A 43% On Rotten Tomatoes. Does Anyone Know How This Happened?

Becoming a parent has been a transformative experience that nothing could have prepared me for. When I hold my 2-month-old son, Mason, in my arms, I feel love and joy unlike anything Ive ever known. Thats why I determined it a little confusing when I logged onto Rotten Tomatoes the other day and discovered that Mason had garnered a meager 43 percent rating. Does anyone know why this happened?

Frankly, Im amazed that Rotten Tomatoes even reviewed my son, since they principally seem to stick to movies. My wife and I surely didnt submit our newborn for critical consideration, so we never expected Americas top film reviewers to weigh in on him. On top of that, Im puzzled that he received a middling grade, which resulted in a green tomato splat being displayed by his name. I know that 43 percent isnt a entirely terrible score, but it does technically categorize him as rotten on the Tomatometer.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone wrote that a promising newborn soon wears out its welcome, rehashing the same tiresome premise with diminishing returns. A reviewer from Slate said he was artless and by the numbers and the Village Voice absolutely slammed my newborn, panning him as less charismatic than the crib he sleeps in. Do any mothers out there know if theres any style I can get these negative reviews pulled?

To be fair, Mason has also received some flattering write-ups. Manohla Dargis hailed him as a victory of infancy, and Screen Rant dedicated him four superstars. Also, his audience score is 65 percent, which is pretty good, all things considered. However, as a parent, Im not sure I want even rave reviews for small children thats so young. My wife and I have been very privacy-minded when it comes to social media, and weve set all the baby paintings we posted to Facebook to be visible to friends merely, which induces it even more unsettling to insure him reviewed by movie critics across the nation.

Any advice is appreciated. It simply disturbs me that when Mason get older and Googles his own name, the first thing hell see is a photo of himself as an baby followed by dozens of film reviewers dissecting every aspect of his first days out of the womb.

Basically, I are truly appreciate it if someone knows whether I should contact Rotten Tomatoes, or whether I should just reach out to the individual publishings that reviewed my son. Mason continues to learn and grow every day, and might merit a higher rating at this phase. Ill maintain loving Mason no matter what the critics say about him, but Id feel much more comfortable if he wasnt on Rotten Tomatoes, or at the least had a shiny red tomato certifying him fresh.
